Our first call out of 2020 saw the team being called to assist the North West Ambulance Service with a casualty having breathing difficulties near Pendle Hill.
The team was stood down whilst en-route as the ambulance crew were able to locate and extract the casualty without the assistance of Mountain Rescue.
